Storyline

The Doctor needs to return to Gallifrey but, because of Romana's action in the previous adventure, he is dreading the paperwork and official inquiry. Instead he convinces Adric they should stop by Earth to take some measurements of a police box before heading to Logopolis to have repairs completed to the Chameleon Circuit. Arriving on Earth the Doctor senses something wrong. A time bubble has formed, causing a TARDIS to appear within a TARDIS. The Doctor fears it's an infinite regression. If so, he and Adric will be trapped forever. Meanwhile Tegan, an Australian airline hostess, enters the Doctor's TARDIS after her car breaks down. Written by glen_chapman

The Sombre Final Adventure for the 4th Doctor
26 May 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This is story is pervaded by feelings of dread and decay. It's very well written, yet unavoidably sullen. The Fourth Doctor is not long for this world, and the presence of a shadowy phantom confirms this.

The Doctor quickly finds himself coming to terms with feelings loss and even death. For the audience, this almost seems like a countdown to the unavoidable end of of a character that a generation had grown up watching (1974-1981).

The Newly regenerated Master lures the Doctor into a trap that will ultimately put the entire universe in danger and force the Doctor to make the ultimate sacrifice to stop him.

So many things ended with this story- season 18, the Tom Baker era, and- some might say- classic Doctor Who. For better or worse, things would NEVER be the same after this.
